The ZD500R supports both direct thermal and thermal transfer printing and features a variety of user-friendly attributes including one-touch printing and encoding, straightforward loading, and automatic RFID calibration.

With these Link-OS apps, the ZD500R can connect to the Cloud directly and securely, plus pair to NFC-enabled devices for immediate data access.

Intended for low- to mid-volume label printing, ideal applications include retail in-store tagging, healthcare specimen tracking, manufacturing asset tracking, government document and evidence tracking, and RFID wristbands and ticketing.
